Guest Moderator ­ AMNON BUCHBINDER:

Anmon Buchbinder’s short films encompassed narrative and
experimental approaches and extended to performing arts adaptations and documentaries.
After a director’s residency at the Canadian Film Centre, his critically
acclaimed, genie-winning first feature The Fishing Trip was made in
collaboration with his students at York University, where he works as a
Professor of Film. Amnon’s second feature
Whole New Thing, which he co-wrote and directed, was a major hit on the
international festival circuit. Published in 2005, his book The Way of the Screenwriter sets out a
philosophical yet highly practical approach to screenwriting. Buchbinder has
taught professional screenwriting workshops and has worked as a creative consultant
and story editor for filmmakers all across Canada

 

Writer Anthony Van Pham is a lawyer and human rights
advocate living and working in downtown Toronto. This is his second script read
at LIFT OUT LOUD. His first was later produced into a short film that screened
at various festivals around the world, including the Montreal World Film
Festival and London International.
